PS ... I have one of those pull bouys
I find the pull bouy useful for a session of drills, when the aim is to slow the pace right down, focus on the arm techniques, breathing or stroke timing. After half a dozen lengths you ditch the toy and try to put in into practice on your ownio and swim the rest of your session until the onset of fatigue.
*** This is pretty much a description of our coached session.
Midweek I'm just going in and doing endurance training. 1.5k, 2k, 2.5k at the moment, depending on available time.
Swimming is a sport that is not natural to everyone. Walking, running, biking, all of these are quite easy to master, however, it takes some coordination and stamina to learn how to swim and to top it all off, before we improve our swim technique, we all have a different swimming style based on our physical ability which makes it that much more challenging.Just get some lessons in and learn the right technique and then go from there.
Hi, I used the pull bouy for a few weeks to get used to the front crawl. I leave it at home now and I'm currently up to 1/2 mile in total at the pool. Its a bit stop start but a big improvement, my aim now is to get used to doing it all without pausing between lengths.
